In the world of remodeling and redecorating, one thing that people like to do is to make use of wallpaper — but typically, they use it specifically for applying wallpaper to the wall — but there’s more that you can do with wallpaper than just apply it to the wall.
Indeed, though the word wall is right there in wallpaper, you don’t have to use it for the wall — it’s good to know that you can improve the look of your home by making use of wallpaper.
The first thing that you can do with your wallpaper that has nothing to do with applying it to the walls is to change up the look of your kitchen or other (bathroom?) cabinets.
The good thing about using wallpaper for decorating your cabinets is that if you use the right kind of wallpaper (the kind that is easy to remove, ideally) you’ll be able to rotate from a number of wallpapers, perhaps even ones that you get for a low cost as samples — and thus regularly have a nice new look to your kitchen or other cabinets.
Speaking of cabinets, if you want to add a little bit of color to your cabinets or just about anything that has drawers (dressers for example) you can take advantage of your wallpaper and get the drawers looking extra nice.
When you add wallpaper to your drawers as liners, one particularly good thing that you get from the process is that you might find it easier to clean the insides of the drawers as sometimes the texture of the wallpaper makes for an easier cleaning experience.
Another good thing that you can make happen for your home in terms of interior design with wallpaper is to either make or remake a lampshade using it.
Here too you can really take advantage of the fact that wallpaper can look like just about anything — and if you go to custom printers you can even get custom printed wallpaper that will look like anything you want — and so you can get a lampshade in your home that can show off how creative you are.
Some people will say that some of the best lampshades are those that are made with wallpaper that matches the wallpaper that is on the wall and it is up to you if you want to go that route.
Another way that you can take your existing wallpaper to change the look of something that you already have is to take it and apply it to flower pots in order to give the pots the look of the wallpaper.
The way that you’re going to be applying the wallpaper is through a technique that is referred to as decoupage, and though it is beyond the scope of this blog to explain exactly how to do it, rest assured that you will be able to find guides online to do it.
Lastly, a way that you can take your leftover wallpaper is to make or make over giant letters that you are going to be able to use to decorate your home.
There are many things that you can do with such letters, such as writing out the name of the members of your family or even loved pets — it’s great to have such a name on the wall or just to use the wallpaper to properly decorate with wallpaper.
